Are we parents yet?

The Clements’ IVF Journey

Another negative February 16, 2009

Filed under: Sadness — Aria @ 1:19 am

I don’t see how there can be enough change in the next 16 hours to get a positive blood test.

Cody says he’s still going to hope, but I don’t think he means that.

Maybe I should demand the Suleman Special and demand half a dozen embryos be transferred. We’d have two left over. /sarcasm

I wish I knew where this originated from. But a long google search has brought up nothing. Al I can find this list on is blogs and forums.

This is what happens in a 3dt :
1dpt…Embryo is growing and developing
2dpt…Embryo is now a blastocyst
3dpt…Blastocyst hatches out of shell on this day
4dpt…Blastocyst attaches to a site on the uterine lining
5dpt…Implantation begins,as the blastocyst begins to bury in the lining
6dpt…Implantation process continues and morula buries deeper in the lining
7dpt…Morula is completely inmplanted in the lining and has placenta cells &
fetal cells
8dpt…Placenta cells begin to secret HCG in the blood
9dpt…More HCG is produced as fetus develops
10dpt…More HCG is produced as fetus develops
11dpt…HCG levels are now high enough to be immediately detected on HPT

This is what happens in a 5dt:
-1dpt…Embryo is growing and developing
0dpt…Embryo is now a blastocyst
1dpt…Blastocyst hatches out of shell on this day
2dpt…Blastocyst attaches to a site on the uterine lining
3dpt…Implantation begins,as the blastocyst begins to bury in the lining
4dpt…Implantation process continues and morula buries deeper in the lining
5dpt…Morula is completely implanted in the lining and has placenta cells & fetal cells
6dpt…Placenta cells begin to secret HCG in the blood
7dpt…More HCG is produced as fetus develops
8dpt…More HCG is produced as fetus develops
9dpt…HCG levels are now high enough to be immediately detected on HPT

From sites that are more reputable than forums and blogs, sites such as peeonastick.com and pregnancy test websites, the majority of women should have a positive by now. The odds are stacked against me for IVF, and now a test is against me. Double whammy. Maybe triple with having to physically suffer for nothing too.

It’s just not possible for enough to change between now and morning, is it?
